This month's XBL Rewards featured offer
has led to disappointment for quite a few people, especially those who don't live in a select few countries in Europe. To try and make amends, a new MyPunchcard system has been launched today.
For May, there is a single punchcard, titled "Tune In, Cash Out", that is centred on Xbox Video. To get a single punch, members must purchase any TV Season Pass or HD film at a price of 1000 MSP or more. To fill the card and get all five punches, this means that members must purchase five TV Season Passes or HD films. Once the card is completely filled, members will earn themselves a rebate of 1000 MSP
The offer period started on May 8th and ends on July 15th. Once a punch has been earned, it can take up to 96 hours to appear on the MyPunchcard page. After players have completed the punchcard, the rebate will be displayed under the Pending section of the Rewards page within 96 hours.
For the first time, Sweden has also been added to the list of areas in which the Rewards program is available. The offer is available to all Xbox LIVE Rewards members over the age of 13 in these countries too: Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, United Kingdom and United States. The offer is not available to Xbox LIVE Rewards members in Hong Kong, Singapore or Taiwan.
